Provide Security to Linda

Linda Sarsour is receiving death threats and calls for being arrested and executed after she referred to standing up to oppressors as a form of jihad during her address at the Islamic Society of North America.

Let’s come together and provide private security (transportation, security escorts) for our sister being threatened for exercising her right to freedom of speech and religion.

SUPPORT HERE: #IStandWithLinda
Goal is $10,000 by Aug 3rd. So far over $8,000 raised – will you be among the supporters?











See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil




This photograph comes from a position of protest – as a Muslim woman I challenge the male gaze by choosing to express modesty and express my body autonomy by deciding what people get to see of my form.

This photo is aiming to challenge the current public discourse on hijab and niqab, by strategically positioning a folded scarf across my face highlighting different elements of my face, yet still remaining identifiable I hope to point out the ridiculousness of the opinion that face veil renders a woman unidentifiable.

The use of Quran on a tablet, reflects the timelessness of the teachings of Islam, indeed they are for all times.

This is how the Secular West views women: Miss Representation (warning trailer contains images of immodest women – Astaghfirullah!)

  • About 25% of girls will experience teen dating violence.
  • The number of cosmetic surgical procedures performed on youth 18 or younger more than tripled from 1997 to 2007.
  • Among youth 18 and younger, liposuctions nearly quadrupled between 1997 and 2007 and breast augmentations increased nearly six-fold in the same 10-year period.
  • 65% of American women and girls report disordered eating behaviors.
    These film makers suggest the solution is to fix media by removing the gender differential roles of men and women – have an androgenous, uni-sex society where both men and women are equally participating in the traditionally esteemed activities of ‘men’ – making money and fighting wars for the profits of Corporations.What these Secular Feminist film makers do NOT do – is esteem the singular ability of women that of motherhood – still denigrating the inner nature of women for caring. In ISLAM women can do both – participate in society in roles of business and leadership BUT not at the expense of being a mother and wife.  In Islam a woman can work, earn and grow her own independent wealth, she does not have to pay for one dollar of the upkeep of the household, even if she is richer than the husband. What she owns before and during the marriage stays with her in divorce. She does all this AND MAINTAINS HER DIGNITY IN HIJABSO PLEASE TELL ME HOW IRANIAN WOMEN ARE BEING OPPRESSED?SADLY MUSLIM MEN ARE INCREASINGLY CONSUMING THESE VILE IMAGES OF WOMEN IN ALL FORMS OF MEDIA, MUSIC, GAMING AND EVEN PORNOGRAPHY – COMMITTING ZINA OF THE SENSES AND DISGRACING THEMSELVES, WOMEN AND ISLAM BY BEHAVING LIKE THE WORST OF KAFIR MEN!AS THE PROPHET SAID: BEFORE YOU LOOK LUSTFULLY AT A WOMAN KNOW THAT SHE IS SOMEONE’S DAUGHTER, WIFE, SISTER, MOTHER, AUNT – AND THEN THINK OF YOUR OWN FEMALE RELATIVES BEING LOOKED AT LUSTFULLY. YOU WOULD NOT WANT IT (IF YOU WERE A MAN OF DEEN) – ISLAM IS FOR JUSTICE SO DO NOT TREAT OTHERS UNJUSTLY.
